Not a Word, but Plenty of Sweeping

As we pulled into our driveway after running an errand tonight, we realized that Q's incessant happy chatter had not paused for breath in about twenty minutes and had reached such an intense level that our ears fell off.

SwingDaddy turned to me and said, "Is this the same child whose preschool teacher wrote us a note saying that she hasn't heard him say one word out loud yet?"

Overall, he seems to be pretty happy at school (if quiet), learning to cut with scissors and new nursery rhymes. His teacher says that she's sure that he's start talking once he's more comfortable. We're not that worried about it, since we're familiar with his "warm up" period, but we started asking him what news he was going to give Teacher A at school tomorrow.

"Are you going to tell her about the cookie you had tonight?"
"No."
"Are you going to tell her about the bouncy house from the party this weekend?"
"No."
"Are you going to tell her about your new book?"
"No. Mop. Vacuum."
"You're going to tell her about the mop and vacuum the housecleaners used today."
"Yay!"

The school posted some new pictures today, and among them was this one:

Nothing, if not consistent in his love of mops.

It's just so Q!

He'll talk when he has something to say. :)

The hat is a nice touch to go along with the beloved mop.

Oh, that is too cute! My Trent was in Early Intervention a few years ago, and now he's such a chatterbug that we can't turn him off.

YF - Maybe the two of them can open a little house-care and child-care business together!

Ha! Cute. Pumpkinpie is into her broom right now, and this morning she took her little brush and dustpan and swept up the crumbs of dry pasta necklace that she had stepped on and put them in the green bin/garbage. Awesome!
